This is singer-songwriter, John Gay’s, first appearance at The Blind Horse. His gritty contemplative sound ripened while he served a nine year sentence for marijuana that started in 2011. After his release, John started performing his solo acoustic set at various venues around southeastern Wisconsin playing some of his original music along with covers of his favorite artists such as Jason Isbell, The Lumineers, Chris Stapleton and Zach Williams.
John released his first two singles in 2019, Death Row and Concrete Floor. Grappling with loss and redemption these songs typify much of the music he wrote in that time period.
